ii ixj ngi f tjrifr Second Guessing xtt' ; ? 01 Boier By Jim Barnhart Pantagraph Sports Editor The defensive backfield is no place for the shy. Make a mistake and you don't have to assure your teammates with a "My fault. My fault." Everyone in the stadium knows it was your fault. You don't have to remind them. You might even get credit for a few that aren't your doing. Lou Baker, the for mer Illinois btate quarterback who coaches the defensive backs at Illinois, says one step in the wrong direction can mean six points for the opposition. Baker is teaching the rudiments of playing defensive halfback to Bloomington's Ron Bess. An offensive halfback during his sopho- more and junior years, Bess was m o v e d to defense a few days before practice opened when the Illini secondary became depleted because of ineligibility and illness. "He's doing fine," Baker said of Bess. "He's got a lot to learn but he's working hard and that's all you can ask. "I didn't see Ron play in high school but a lot of people have told me he was a good defensive back then. He's been away from tackling for four years but it's coming back to him now. He's a hitter." Baker thinks it takes more agility to play defense than offense. "Those receivers come at you full force and they know where they're going," said Baker. "The defensive back has to run backwards and keep his balance. We make them run backwards through every drill. They've got to be balanced on the balls of their feet and be able to change direction." Baker pointed out that Bess is working against two of the finest pass receivers in the nation in John Wright and Craig Timko. "He works against them every day," said Baker. The Illini practice three times a day on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. They go at 7 a..m., 2 p.m., and 7 p.m. Double drills are held on Tuesdays and Thursday. They work out at 7 a.m. on Saturdays and then come back at 2 p.m. to scrimmage. Although Baker made his mark as a fine passer at ISU, he's no stranger to defense. Lou has worked with the linebackers at Illinois and coached the offensive and defensive backfield during a year at Colorado State. More Trivia How's your Big 10 football quotient for this season?

Tigers Rally To Beat White Sox, 7-3 CHICAGO (AP) - Two-run singles by pinch hitter Jim Nor-t thrup and Willie Horton keyed a seven-run ninth inning uprising that gave the streaking Detroit Tigers a 7-3 victory over Chicago Saturday and preserved their share of the American League lead. Trailing 3-0 in the ninth, the Twins Kaat Win BALTIMORE (AP) - The Minnesota Twins retained their share of first place in th mer-ican League pennart scramble Saturday as Jim Kaat pitched a five-hitter and defeated Baltimore 3-2. The victory kept the Twins in a flat-footed tie for the lead with Detroit, which rallied for seven runs in the ninth inning and a 7-3 victory over Chicago. Third-place Boston, which beat New York 7-1 in a night game, remained one-half game off the pace and the fourth-place White Sox fell two games off the pace. Two of the hits off Kaat, now 12-13 efter a poor start, were home runs the 400th of Frank Robinson's major league career and an eighth inning pinch shot by San Bowens. 38th Homer Harmon Killebrew's 38th homer, giving him one less than Boston's Carl Yastrzemski, the major-league lead, snapped a scoreless tie in the fourth inning. Minnesota chased loser Bill Dillman, 5-9, in the seventh. Ted Uhlaender doubled and scored on a single by Cesar Tovar. After Tovar stole second and Tony Oliva was intentionally walked, Bob Allison singled to make it 3-0. Oliva, who had eight hits in nine trips during Friday's twi-night doubleheader, singled in liis first two at bats to run his consecutive string to nine before striking out in the fifth. Retires Next Five The leadoff homer in the seventh by Robinson, who missed a month of the season because of an injury, was his 27th of the year. He became the 13th player in history to reach the 400-hom-er mark. Then, in the eighth, Bowens, batting for Eddie Watt, lined his fourth of the year, cutting the Twins' lead to one run. But Kaat bore down and retired the last five batters in order to end it.

The loss dropped the fourth place White Sox two games off the pace. Southpaw Gary Peters breezed into the ninth with a three-hitter before Al Kaline's single triggered the Tigers' comeback. Peters got Horton on a fly to left, but Bill Freehan singled off the glove of shortstop Ron Hansen and Ed Mathews drew a walk; filling the bases. Bases Still Loaded Bob Locker replaced Peters on the mound and Don Wert greeted the reliever with a single to right, scoring Kaline and leaving the bases jammed. Jin Northrup then hit for pitcher Pat Dobson and laced a two-run single to left, tying the game. Norm Cash, batting for Dick Tracewski against southpaw Wilbur Wood, broke the tie with a single to right. Don McMahon came on, walked Mickey Stanley and Al Kaline to force in another run and was clipped for Horton's two-run single to right. In all, the Tigers sent 13 batters to the plate before Rodgers Nelson got the last out. Three-Run Lead Fred Lasher set down the White Sox in the bottom of the ninth, protecting Dobson's first victory in three major league decisions. The White Sox had given Peters a three-run edge on Tom-mie Agee's run-scoring single in the fourth and a two-run sixth inning burst highlighted by Ken Boyer's triple. Detroit rookie John Killer retired the Sox in order until the fourth, when Walt Williams doubled and raced home on Agee's single to right. Don Buford singled in the sixth and Boyer clubbed a 375-foot triple up the left center field alley. Pinch runner Joe Horlen then trotted home on a single by Pete Ward. i ' ' .',-' , " ' ' r : r ' - r -, . ; v - ' ' - v ",.'.;'- - ' - 1 . . - , ' . t I ' -,ir: '" ' ; t t, r j jr ' f ' . '3 . ' . .

(AP) -The injury-plagued Chicago Bears, capitalizing on a pass interception and a short field goal attempt, used two long pass plays and a rock-hard defense for a 14-0 National Football League exhibition victory over the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday night. Max Percival, a highly touted kicker who had been cut by the Bears after the Green Bay exhibition, was brought back into the line-up and booted both ex tra points and a field goal that was nullified by a 15-yard holding penalty. Most of the game depended upon defense, and the deepest the Eagles ever penetrated into Bear territory was to the 28 in the final period. Three plays later, Larry Rake-straw connected for a 39-yard touchdown pass to Dick Gordon. The final tally came in the last quarter after Norm Snead's pass was intercepted by Richie Petitbon at the Bear 23 and returned to the 52. Three plays later, Rakestraw hit Gale Savers on a 24-yard touchdown pass. The Bears had won only one previous exhibition game, while dropping the three. The Eagles wound up the exhibition season with a 4-2 record.
